Cambridge Council approves traffic signal update

City Engineer: ODOT to absorb cost of upgrade

CAMBRIDGE, Ohio -- The Finance Committee of Cambridge City Council met on Monday night and approved an upgrade for two traffic signal on Southgate Parkway.

City Engineer Paul Sherry said that ODOT will upgrade the signals to the State's new wind resistant standard. The project won't cost City Residents a cent, as the project will be completely funded by ODOT. Finance gave the Engineer approval to enter into contract with ODOT for the signal upgrade.

It is also apparently the season for transfers and appropriations. Finance approved one appropriation, for over $1,700, from Code Enforcement Officer Kim Conrath, for services by contract. The monies were brought in by mowing services preformed by city contractors.

The committee also heard and approved a number of requests for transfers, as department heads in the City moved small sums of money from one line item to another in an attempt to keep their budgets in balance towards the year's end. Among the transfers approved were four requested by the Community and Economic Develpment Department for nearly $5,000 from Salaries to four different line items. Three requests from the Mayor's Office for $1,500 from General Fund Community Enhancement to three different line items. And a request by the Service and Safety Department for the transfer of $300 from fuel and light, to telephone.

Finance briefly discussed Mayor Tom Orr's request for funding for a number of projects that the administration and the Park Board are considering in the Cambridge City Parks. Mayor Orr requested a line of credit of around $560,000 for the projects two weeks ago. City Auditor Suellen Johnson is still in the process of reaching out to local banks for the funds. The matter was tabled until results from the Auditor's inquiries have returned.
